56107. (a) This division shall be liberally construed to effectuate
its purposes. No change of organization or reorganization ordered
under this division and no resolution adopted by the commission
making determinations upon a proposal shall be invalidated because of
any defect, error, irregularity, or omission in any act,
determination, or procedure which does not adversely and
substantially affect the rights of any person, city, county,
district, the state, or any agency or subdivision of the state.
(b) All determinations made by a commission under, and pursuant
to, this division shall be final and conclusive in the absence of
fraud or prejudicial abuse of discretion.
(c) In any action or proceeding to attack, review, set aside,
void, or annul a determination by a commission on grounds of
noncompliance with this division, any inquiry shall extend only to
whether there was fraud or a prejudicial abuse of discretion.
Prejudicial abuse of discretion is established if the court finds
that the determination or decision is not supported by substantial
evidence in light of the whole record.
